Welcome to the Sinclair2NKU Transfer Site

Sinclair2NKU is a partnership between Sinclair Community College and Northern Kentucky University. This site is provided for transfer assistance for students working toward the completion of an associate degree planning to transfer from Sinclair to Northern Kentucky University.  The information provided on this website does not take the place of an advisor or counselor on your campus.

Pathways to Degree Completion

The pathway guides are advising tools designed to help community college students plan for transferring to NKU to complete their baccalaureate degree. The pathway guides also constitute an agreement between community colleges and universities confirming that community college courses meet major preparation requirements.
